John Hughes won a gold medal in the Architecture section of the Arts competition at the 1932 Los Angeles Olympics for his “Design of a Sports and Recreation Centre with Stadium for the City of Liverpool”. He was a British architect, who came from the Liverpool School of Architecture. He had visited Germany and his style was influenced by this experience. However, his Olympic award-winning design was not realized. He designed St. Andrew's Gardens, a building inspired by Art Deco and today serving as a dormitory for the University of Liverpool. Amongst others, Hughes worked with the famous Liverpool architect Sir Lancelot Keay.
